So what games have been confirmed to work with the $5 bump? I saw that Battlefield 2042 and Mario Golf work. Can't quite recall the other games that work.


I have pre ordered Wario Ware and pokemon diamond. Both worked. Also seen another user say the Zelda game and watch worked. I'm pretty sure it's any pre order in the system.

Anyone have any luck finding a new Dualshock 4 controller? Sony seems to have shifted all focus on the DualSense (easy to find in store), understandably.


I've seen them at Target

I'm so glad Frisky doesn't have to post the deals anymore, I think there is like 1,800 eShop games on sale right now 😳

Man, do I go with Paper Mario or Xenoblade to blow the rest of my gold coins? I've got a chip on my shoulder about how they'll never make another Paper Mario to measure up to Thousand Year Door, so I'm thinking Xenoblade since I've never played it on Wii.


I was not a huge fane of oragami king, it was fun for about 5 hours, but the battle system is bad. If you are into JRPGs then Xenoblade is a great one.

Metroid Dread is definitely the highlight of the show, at least for this year.

Prime 4 must be pretty far off to show nothing, and no Bayonetta 3 at all. Lots of remakes and remasters, some good some eh.

I mean the idea was to showcase games coming in 2021, with Zelda being the one exception for 2022. Metroid Prime 4 definitely isn't coming in 2021. I imagine E3 next year we will see it.

I will say, that for Nintendo to do a Zelda game and watch system instead of a collection of some sort for switch was a huge disappointment. Also a bummer to not even get the DX version of links awakening on the game and watch. Overall I was happy, Metroid Dread looks very cool, Mario party looked fine, love advanced wars as a kid, SMT V will be good, Wario Ware looks fun, and Breath of the Wild 2 looks great.

Metroid Dread looks sick

My experience, playing Black Flag:

I'm a pirate and having swordfights and crazy adventure, finally sailing this ship out to sea, wait... What's happening..?
I'm walking through an office building lobby and getting an ID card. Oh snap! Getting that elevator access card son! That's MY cubicle? SICK! Better have that Herman Miller chair in there for my lumbar!

Super...dumb.


If you think that's bad, try sitting through the assassin's creed movie.

Super excited for a new Mario + Rabbits game, although I am reluctant to pay anything close to full price for it, so will probably wait a bit to play. But the first game was really great.

If only they sold codes for things like the Immortals Season Pass for consoles on there. That would be an amazing deal.


I was thinking the same thing when I was browsing on there. They sell it for PC, but I have it on PS5 so that's no help.

People seem to say you can us it in multiple separate orders. Haven't tried it personally


Thanks just tried and it worked. Got both assassin's Creed games for $10 each, both came with 200 gold coins. Also grabbed Scott pilgrim and the Mario rabbits season pass for about $10. Scott pilgrim did not include gold coins for some reason but Mario rabbits season pass included 100 gold coins.

All I want is Battlefield Bad Company 3 but those cowards at DICE just won't do it!

While everyone is talking about recommendations from the sale I have a few of my own. I would recommend Crossing Souls gameplay reminds me of the Chrono Trigger/Secret of Mana battle system, Flipping Death quirky game about reversing death and Remothered Tormented Fathers nicely done survival horror game that's a mix of the old Clock Tower games and Outlast


I'm confused, Chrono trigger is turn based and secret of mana is real time/action rpg. I'll have to look into it none the less.


#14400301 Miitopia for the Switch is 41$ at Walmart

Posted by TheLegendofTyler on 01 June 2021 - 01:07 AM

That Switch premium ... still amazing how many people out there will buy old games for $20-30 more. I get that the game is new for other players, but I wonder how many are just double-dipping on all of these last-gen/old games that publishers are just milking as free revenue. The Switch has become home for publishers -- Nintendo included -- looking to cash-in (at least) one more time on old releases at MSRP. I'm glad it's a healthy ecosystem, but I also wonder how much longer will players fork over this much to play an old game -- and one many have already played before.

It certainly explains why publishers are happy to buy out old developers and IP, and "remaster" them. Why bother making new things when the old stuff keeps on selling.


The switch is somewhat unique in that there are a lot of owners that didn't own a Wii U, and probably quite a few that didn't have a 3DS as well. So for these people a lot of these games are new and interesting or it was something they always wanted to play. It certainly helps Nintendo fill the calendar with games, where the Wii U had crazy long dry spells. On top of that there is another sub section of Switch owners that only get Nintendo consoles and have never played games the came only to Xbox/PS consoles. So games like kingdoms of Amalur, ni no Kuni, and red faction are new to a section of the install base. As you said, if it sells they will keep doing it. I have no issues with older games getting new life on new consoles and portability of some of these games is nice, but like you said if they do this instead of new games, then there could be a problem down the road.
